After taking two consecutive weeks off, the NBC late-night shows returned for the week of June 11-15, 2018, and predictably, managed to climb back up in the late-night ratings. “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” rose three-hundredths of a point from a 0.46 to a 0.49 rating in adults 18-49, and as a result, was able to reclaim its place above its competitors in the 11:35 p.m. time slot. Meanwhile, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” maintained a 0.28 for the second week in a row.

On ABC, however, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” fell noticeably down to a 0.38, and CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” ticked up one-hundredth of a point from a 0.38 to a 0.39. Despite ticking up the week before as well, “The Late Late Show with James Corden” fell to a 0.21 from its previous 0.23, also on CBS.

In cable, TBS’ “Conan” was able to tick up one-hundredth of a point to a 0.18, while Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” maintained its previous 0.24 yet again. Additionally, “The Opposition with Jordan Klepper” rose to a 0.13 from a 0.12.

Here are the late-night numbers for June 11-15, 2018:
